Thinkpad T21 keeps turning itself off

I spilled some wine on my Thinkpad T21 and then let it dry, took it apart to make sure it was dry then put it back together. I can get it to start and run and work properly for a couple minutes but then it keeps shutting itself off. PLEASE help. This is my fathers computer and I really cant afford to replace the entire thing right now.

You're going to have to open the machine up, which isn't something I recommend for a novice. It's possible the fan has become sticky and isn't turning properly, so the thermostat is shutting the system down. It's also possible there is a short somewhere. Does the keyboard work properly? Is it sticky? Was it red or white wine? (it could make a difference, but it doesn't) Good luck

My daughter spilled water on her IBM Thinkpad - she's dried the battery and everything looks fine, but it won't even power on.


HI there,

Spill damage to a laptop often short curcuits the motherbaord inside and often ruins it. There are some vendors on eBay who offer a flat rate service where they guarantee that if they canntot repair the spill damage, they will return the laptop with NO CHARGE for the attempt.

I've used several of these vendors anit's about a 50% recovery rate so far. If they CAN repair it, they'll give you a quote qhich could be from $125 to as much as $250.

Go to eBay and in the searchbox type in "Laptop Motherboard Repair" and look through the auctions/vendors to find one like I described above. Otherwise, your only option is to find a local laptop specialist (like I am in my town) and get a price for buying and replacing the motherboard.

Best Regards,

Marcus

Spilled wine in keyboard


it really depends, on the logitech stuff they have the accidental spill holes in the bottom so liquid doesn't pool but there is a possibility that it could have saturated the board and ruinied the internals, just try to dry it out as best you can and hope for the best

Thinkpad T21 Boot Problems Problems


This is caused by a system board failure. Take the laptop apart again and check all of your connections. Also make sure the ram and processor are seated correctly. You can also try hooking up an external monitor to see if any errors display. This may be an indication that the video cable connected to the system board is not fully connected.

Spilled wine now cant get camera off movie mode


Turn camera off! Take out battery!
Now, with NO Electrical contact or power in it, try to clean wine residue away from any moving parts with clean water and try drying unit slowly in front of a heater or hair dryer. If available, put a small amount of WD-40 in the same areas, making sure to wipe away any drainage or excess. Allow to dry overnight in warm area, pehaps by heater, but don't let it get too hot. Reinstall battery and turn it on.
It should work find now. Good Luck!

This is a common problem with the T20 series Thinkpad. The problem is with the power management chip. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard to fix it. Since these are a bit on the older side, you can get a motherboard off Ebay at a reasonable price.

IBM thinkpad T21


I had a similar problem after My pc got damp in a bag in the rain. I contacted IBM and was given this fix which I am supprised worked but it did so here it is cannot hurt to try. Remove the main battery and the mains power supply press the power on button for 17 seconds. This I think is to drain all the power from the laptop altogether. Replace the mains lead and turn on. Once the laptop has openen up into windows turn it off and replace the mains battery then power on again. In my case this worked I hope this helps.
